At the rate things are going (console ports), my setup may last 10 years lol.
Games always getting better, and just needing that little bit more. ESP running at max settings.
Like others have said, you will need the system to back the video card up.

Quad core, better psu, graphics card isn't the biggest concern at that resolution.

get a 590 when they hit the shelves, or 580 SLI, then throw in a sandy bridge quality i7 (2600k iirc), 12gb ram, and a 850w corsair or cooler master psu, you should be good for a wile, but maybe not 5 years

For the next 5 years and that resolution, I guess 6950 1GB will be perfect. My card is about 3 years old, it was a "budget" card back then still it runs everything maxed out on this resolution (except crysis, I run it on a lower resolution instead).

Edit: Keep in mind guys that he runs on 1280x1024, if he considers upgrading his monitor however he should get some of the other cards mentioned in the topic.

ps we'll have windows 8 and directx 12 in less than five years so we'll probably be outdated with our dx11 cards

If you want it to last 5 years, save up for a 2500k, and a GTX 580
